Important Notice Please Read

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times or when Senior Aerobics classes are held; we cannot tell you about the availability or cost of swimming lessons; we cannot get you discounted admission to swim at any of them; and we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)

Also, please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

Facility Notes

Pool hours vary by season and the free admission period may vary from year to year, see the pool's official website ("Website", above) for the most up to date information.
The pool has a mostly unstriped shallow side (¾f - 4f deep) and a deep side (4f - 8f deep); two of the pool's 11 lanes are on the shallow side. During the free admission season, only the deep, competition striped section of the pool is open.
The "Friends of Deep Eddy" also has a website HERE with some fascinating history of this, Texas' oldest artificial, outdoor swimming pool.

Facility Reviews

I just LOVE to swim there. It's got cold, real spring water with no chlorine, a huge lap swimming area, and is just perfect on hot days.
This is the oldest man-made pool in Texas. Somewhat weird (like Austin), the pool has green water, angled-in walls, and the formerly in-style 33.33-yard (100-foot) length. The water is cool but refreshing on summer days. I have seen people wearing wetsuits but you don't need one. You can usually have a lane to yourself or split one with someone else. It's probably the only place you can set a PR in the 100 FOOT freestyle! There are no lockers and the dressing room has no roof. An experience you will remember.

I love swimming at Deep Eddie. The water is cool, clear, non-chlorinated, spring water. The hours are reasonable (check the website) and one can go by the day or buy a multi-use punch card. This is my top choice for lap swimming.

Note that as of 2019, there are lockers available. Bring your own lock. Admission is free during the winter months.
